An M.A. in TESOL and Intercultural Studies provides teachers with a solid foundation in the field of TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages). Designed for both novice and experienced English language teachers, this program is the standard professional degree for positions in universities and language institutes throughout the world. The M.A. in TESOL has been offered since 2000 in a field-based format for ELIC teachers. All courses are offered in an online format throughout the year so that teachers can access them from any location! Intensive courses are offered each year on Wheaton’s campus and other locations to provide the option of in-person instruction and to enhance community building. Combined with the TEFL Certificate, this MA takes three years to earn.
Through a cooperative arrangement between ELIC and Wheaton College, students accepted by both ELIC and Wheaton College will receive a tuition discount. Advance work, including reading, research, projects, is required for all intensive courses.
